Eastbound McAndrews Road on and off-ramps will be closed for construction beginning Monday April 24th, until June 9. Detours using Hillcrest, Sunrise and Springbrook Roads will be in place.
This closure will allow contractor Knife River Materials to build retaining walls and other ramp and intersection improvements with Foothill Road.
Once those ramps are complete and open, construction will switch to the west bound on and off-ramps June 12 through July 19.
The work is part of the $62 million Foothill Road project, dubbed the “Mega-Corridor.” The project is being constructed in part due to a $15 million Federal Build Grant received by Medford. It improves Foothill Road from Delta Waters Road south to Hillcrest Road.
When complete at the end of 2026, the existing two-lane road will feature two lanes in each direction, along with turn lanes, sidewalks, bike lanes and street lighting.
